Scotch Videocassettes Re record, Not Fade Away 1985

Videotape is magnetic tape used for storing video and usually sound in addition. Information stored can be in the form of either an analog signal or digital signal. Videotape is used in both video tape recorders (VTRs) or, more commonly, videocassette recorders (VCRs) and camcorders. Videotapes are also used for storing scientific or medical data, such as the data produced by an electrocardiogram.

Because video signals have a very high bandwidth, and stationary heads would require extremely high tape speeds, in most cases, a helical-scan video head rotates against the moving tape to record the data in two dimensions.

All of the Creature Comforts Electricity Advert 80’s

Creature Comforts is a stop motion clay animation comedy mockumentary franchise originating in a 1989 British humorous animated short film of the same name. The film matched animated zoo animals with a soundtrack of people talking about their homes, making it appear as if the animals were being interviewed about their living conditions. It was created by Nick Park and Aardman Animations. The film later became the basis of a series of television advertisements for the UK electricity boards, and in 2003 a television series in the same style was released. An American version of the series was also made.

1980s Scotch VHS Head Cleaner

mqdefaultvideotape is a recording of images and sounds on to magnetic tape as opposed to film stock used in filmmaking or random access digital media. Videotapes are also used for storing scientific or medical data, such as the data produced by an electrocardiogram. In most cases, ahelical scan video head rotates against the moving tape to record the data in two dimensions, because video signals have a very high bandwidth, and static heads would require extremely high tape speeds. Videotape is used in both video tape recorders (VTRs) or, more commonly and more recently, videocassette recorder (VCR) and camcorders. Tape is a linear method of storing information and since nearly all video recordings made nowadays are digital direct to disk recording (DDR), videotape is expected to gradually lose importance as non-linear/random-access methods of storing digital video data become more common.

Information stored can be in the form of either an analog signal or digital signal.

1980s Ariston

aristonFounded in 1975 as Merloni Elettrodomestici SpA by Vittorio Merloni, as a spin-off from Industrie Merloni. It was renamed Indesit Company S.p.A in 2005 after a company it acquired in 1987.

In the 1980s, with the release of other Italian companies to foreign groups of appliances, Merloni Household became the first domestic producer in the industry. Since 1981 the Company was going through a crisis period, which ended in 1984, when Vittorio Merloni, having concluded its president of Confindustria, returning to driving. Profits and revenues from the Company grew, and this led the Merloni family in 1986 to decide his entry into the stock market.

In 1987, Merloni Elettrodomestici, already listed on the stock exchange, acquired Indesit, its great rival on the Italian market but also having a certain international presence, and the 33% of Philco Italy.
